Birthday Bogey

I adore my birthday.  Always have.  Yesterday was very busy and I didn’t get to post.  🙁  No bother, birthday bogeys are almost as fun.  It’s the day after ( bogey – a la golf terms)  I also have something for alliteration.  Both loves I share with my mom.

One of the best parts about a birthday is sharing.

Sharing birthday cake with my sweetheart Katey Belle.  And a big thank you to my lovely visiting teachers that brought me a “party” cake – rainbow chip.  And they brought it the day before.  Eating cake on my Birthday Eve felt so indulgent.

I also share a birthday with  How fun is that?

The site is turning FOUR!!!   To celebrate, they’re throwing a HUGE Birthday Bash & Summer Sale. From June 14-26, you can save 20% off of every self-paced class, and 35% off of ALL digital products. In addition, grab all 27 episodes of Jessica’s amazing Photoshop Friday tutorials for just $1 each before they’re retired on June 26.  As part of the celebration, starting on June 24, you can participate in an incredible 47-person blog hop, picking up a sweet digital freebie at each stop! (I’ll be one of those.  🙂 ) Best of all, on June 26 Jessica will be making a special announcement of a brand new class coming up in July. The site is only on sale two times a year, so don’t miss out on this GREAT savings opportunity! For all the info on the Summer Sale, Photoshop Fridays, blog hop, and the new class, just click here!

I personally adore the Photoshop Friday tutorials.  All the supplies to make one layout and a video tutorial teaching a Photoshop skill (or two).  I love the bite-size chunk of Jessica’s knowledge.  And at a dollar a piece it’s fun to collect lots of knowledge… and saved memories.  Beauty.  It looks like all the hybrid (paper+digital) tutorials are also on sale for a dollar.  Fun!

And my whole birthday month is shared with this:

The Mormon Miracle Pageant.  We had our last dress rehearsal on my birthday.  Performances are Thursday – Saturday of this week and Tuesday – Saturday of next.  Anyone (and everyone) is invited to come see it.  Our family is portraying a Nephite family this year (third year now!).  Can you find us above?  Jim Bob is wearing turquoise (and a sleeping Katey).  I am wearing red.  🙂  Our house is full-up this week with visitors, but next week is all open if anyone would like to spend the night.  🙂

And the invite straight from the pageant website that sums up the one and a half hour show:

“Share an evening under the stars with us, enjoying the beauty of the hills and the magnificence of the Manti Utah Temple while you watch this free historical drama.  …The pageant’s three intertwined stories–the restoration of the gospel, the witness of the Book of Mormon, and the journey of the faithful pioneers to the beautiful Sanpete Valley–demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ for all people.”

How we love the simple truths and beauty of the Pageant!
